Looking at all the awesome things to do in London and not sure what to do first? Wonder no more – you know the most important places to go are the ones where you’ll get the best selfies!….

1. Tower Bridge

Don’t make the mistake that EVERYONE seems to make of confusing Tower Bridge with London Bridge! Tower Bridge is the one with the two towers at either end – and by far the most selfie-worthy bridge.

2. The Shard

Going to the top of The Shard? Make sure you catch the ultimate city view – including your lovely self. (Scared of heights? A selfie from the bottom is the next best thing!)

3. Big Ben

One for the Selfie veterans: Get inventive and go the extra mile by “balancing” it on your hand, “holding” it between your fingers etc.

4. The London Eye

From underneath, from across the river, as your background or from inside the capsules,  the London Eye is great  for an “artsy” selfie…

5. Madame Tussauds

The Kim Kardashian figure at Madame Tussauds London actually takes a selfie for you – I’m not kidding! No-one ever has to know you didn’t REALLY meet her….Kim Kardashian waxwork Instagram

8. London Zoo

Animal selfies are notoriously difficult, so getting a critter to pose with you at London Zoo is the selfie equivalent of winning a gold medal.
